Bedlined hinges

I may be bedlining the hinges on my JK soon. I have the rustoleum (I probably spelled that wrong) bedliner in a can and was wondering if anybody has done this. Im also thinking about doing the hood and maybe pulling off the covers and doing the tailgate.

How long does it last?

How do you suggest I prep and mask?

Video, lots of pictures, or super detailed instructions would be VERY helpful!

You see quite a bit of people do this with plastidip as its not permanent. You would need to prep the surface to use bed liner. I'm planing on doing mine in plastidip.

I am also going to do this but using Plasti Dip as it worked great on my grill and wheels. If you use bed liner you will need to prep the surface with some wax/grease remover and possibly have to scuff the paint to make it stick.

LineX and spray on liners are thick and heavy. I did my fenders with lineX and love it. As far as another part I'd just use can spray as its thinner and lighter. Painted surfaces use a prep all to get off wax or use light sandpaper and sand. Then spray. Just like any other prep to paint.

Thinking about this mod as well. For people who have done this - if you remove the hinges to paint them did you use a silicon sealant of some sort after putting the hinges back on? My fear is that over time water might get in there after the factory paint seal is broken
